Burn2 Has Begun

Again Phewww! Despite I was on the press day, I could not make it to post for the opening of Burn2. Too much others things happened and the "Festival der Liebe" is interesting and perfectly organized that I did not only wanted to blog about but also attend.

Burn2 has invited this year 5 artists. See here the pictures and the LM:

Ub Yifu shows a beautiful scene with large sculptures:

Nexuno Thespian enjoys with an explosion of burning colours that makes the Burning Man useless:

Pallina60 Loon created a circus in the sand, as always pinched with humor. Don't miss the gifts, a red nose with sound and a mesh avatar.

Silene Christen invited extraterrestrials to land on her plot:

Fuschia Nightfire had the great idea to great a hangout to relax and chat:

Here some installations that jumped into my eyes too:

Pol Jarvinen proves how important collaborative art works are for the inspiration of artists. He is still heavily inspired by Bryn Oh's Cube Project and I had the feeling of having been landed in a surrealistic self moving container terminal.

Ultraviolet Alter created a beautiful scenery:

Arduenn Schwartzman always has funny and crazy ideas. He build an egg laying house with chicken feet. It is the right space for the story of the book inside which you can read page by page.

Mikati Slade built one of the event stages and fulfilled the requested RL match. I was really amazed by the roof construction.

The building rules this year deserve a comment. The builders has been requested to built as possible in RL. Even the height was restricted. And flying is forbidden. That, what amazes us in Sl is the realization of borderless fantasies. Where is the benefit of such restrictions? In that case I would prefer to visit the RL Burning Man. I talked with several artists and they all shared my opinion. Dear organizers, please refrain from such unnecessary restrictions in future! Allow the impossible! That  is the SL, we love!

Maybe they should refrain from massbannings also. Tonight did they ban not only us guilty of demonstrating peacefully against their behaviour against Kandinsky Beaumont, who lost her plot even though she fullfilled all their rules eventually, but they also banned innocent bystanders and not only from the sim where the demonstration took place but from all six sims of Burn2!

We should ban them into their sim .. so that they never will come out.
